As foreigners, a visit to a Japanese onsen is a must, and we were quite excited and nervous as well. Despite reading as much as we could about the do's and dont's, we still weren't sure if we will 'fit in'. But, Ohara Sanso made us feel very welcomed and comfortable.

This is my first experience to stay in a Japanese onsen. I love it so much! Quiet and peaceful surrounding. We walked from Ohara bus station and clear direction along the way. Will definitely recommend to my friends.

Bear in mind that breakfast and dinner are included in the price. The drawback is no bathroom or shower in the room but the public facilities... More

I got there using a direct bus from the Kyoto International conference center. It took about 15min walk from bus the station. The part of path was lighted with lanterns. I enjoyed cosmos flowers and country side view of Ohara. It is located very close to Jakkou-in Temple, the place for final chapter of the Tale of Heike, Ohara Gokou.... More
